World Renowned Tone
Immediately identifiable on stages around the world thanks to its glowing VU meter, the Ashdown ABM has been a firm favourite with professional gigging bass players for the best part of twenty years. Now in its fifth incarnation, ABM EVO IV pairs class-leading pre amp sophistication with uprated powerhouse performance and an all-new 9-band EQ.
On-Board 9-Band EQ
Plug into the EVO IV and you’ll be greeted straight away by the flickering of the new Input VU meter, allowing you to quickly find the sweet spot your instrument. The Ashdown EVO IV features a sophisticated 9-band EQ, with familiar Bass, Middle and Treble controls and six sliders providing precision cut and boost at 100Hz, 180Hz, 340Hz, 1.3KHz, 2.6KHz and 5KHz.
Dial in Your Perfect Sound
Ashdown's Variable Valve Drive pre amp section has also been upgraded in EVO IV. Delivering more electrical current to the 12AX7 tube enables more drive and harmonic content than ever before, allowing players to dial in a sound from pristine clean, to the fattest, fullest bass overdrive. On the power amp side, EVO IV promises to be the loudest, punchiest ABM yet, with a next-generation power amp and uprated transformers offering unparalleled levels of headroom, definition and low-end push.
Versatile Tone Shaping Ability
Other ABM favourite features are retained in EVO IV, including Ashdown's famous One Knob Dynamic Compressor and the infamous Sub-Harmonic Generator that lets users blend in a sub octave note for huge bass tones. Paired with an FS-4 footswitch (not included) you can switch the Drive, Compression, EQ and Sub effects in and out on the fly, delivering a huge tonal palette to craft a great performance. As with previous ABMs, EVO IV is well served with a DI out, tuner out, separate Sub out, transparent FX loop and a line input for connection of an external sample or sound source.
